    If you have a Marshals near you they have some great nautical finds. Or even a Home Goods store

    Try an aquarium store. They have wall size tanks to small tanks and all the decorations sized to fit, mix these with large hemp rope and it is nautical.

    Nautical themes are very big these days. Home goods ,TJX and Marshals all carry a large variety. I also have seen many items available in Arts and Craft stores.

    My "coffee table" is an antique lobster trap :) I have a large reed tray on top of it with a jar of small shells in it, and several large shells and starfish in it.

    I used to get a Magazine years ago that was out of the New England States and there were lots of Pictures of Old Sailing Ships, Ships Compasses, Rope Knots, Old Sailing Maps, You could decoupage a plain Vase or a Box or Bowl, I like the Suggestion above about a Shadow Box and put sand Shells and Knots in there.. How about a old Telescope like they used to look for land with...These are some ideas..

    I had my living living room like that before. I've used a sail boat, a fishing boat and I've even had a pretty glass bowl that had a pretty brass design as the stand. And I had different star fish, shells, etc....It looked really pretty.

    How about an interesting piece of drift wood or a faux piece of coral? If not large enough for the size of your table, you could stack on some ocean or boat themed coffee table books.

    I like Zuilly, if they don't have something today, check back tomorrow, stock is always changing. Ross, TJ Max and all good too.
